Just me at yet another doctor’s appointment. This one was at a dermatologist last Friday due to a rash that was spreading. Had to make sure it wasn’t a psoriasis flare. Next week will be an injection at the Orthopedic Surgeon’s office. Life with chronic illness is a never ending series of doctors.
You may have noticed a change from my post My Realization. In that post I looked like this
I finally paid a visit to a barber and now I look like this
I think I prefer the scruffy look. What do you think?
Visiting the barber is much more relaxing than visiting any doctor. Barbers deal with the part of my body that doesn’t hurt-My Hair. Barbers are better at small talk. Barbers cost less. Maybe I should see a barber for all of my health concerns. lol
Joking aside, I am grateful for the good doctors Jesus has led me to. The Rheumatologist at UNMC is excellent. The Dermatologist office has two good ones. The Orthopedic Surgeon is great. It is just the barber doesn’t stick me with needles, draw blood, or move my body to see if something hurts. I always wonder about that. For example, tell a doctor a knee hurts and the doctor wants to bend the knee. I mean really can’t they just take my word for it. lol
I will continue to go to both doctors and barbers, but I do prefer one to the other.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Praying for you that all goes well. Have a blessed day/night and remain safe in the arms of Jesus.
Thank you for praying 🙂
I had an epidural last Thursday, and I am waiting for it to kick in all together. Still pain, but that might be normal. Hope all is well.
Epidural- How was it? How are you now?
It’s hasn’t fully kicked in, so I still have pain running down the leg. I do think it is better though. I am disappoointed, but i read it could take up to ten days after the procedure to work, so I am still hopeful. I am still attending college courses, as I work on a Master of Art in Religious Studies at GSU. I thank the Lord that I can still do my work.
I agree with you. Give me my hairdresser any day over a doctor. 🙂 Take care and have a great day.
Barbers and hairdressers = no pain 🙂
Yes! Unless they mess up my hair but that’s a different kind of pain. 😅
The way I get mine cut there is no messing up lol
I’m sometimes tempted to follow suit 😆
You look great in the low cut than the scruffy look. Wishing you peace and longevity!!!
Thank you 🙂
I do like the scruffy look, but I think the barbered look good too
I like the scruffy look but I think my students prefer the barbered look lol
I kinda like the scruffy look 😉
I prefer it but my students don’t
Hey, great to hear the doctors appointment are going as plan. Praise Jesus and I pray the Lord will heal you and less hospital and more barbers.
I love the new haircut, brings out your whole face and makes you handsome even with the mask 🙂
Hope you keeping well, Big Bro

Do you like the weather there?
It is raining this week and I say showers of blessings.
I don’t mind the weather preference is summer but it is nice to have the variety 🙂 it spice things up!
😂😅I think the same about dentist, never much fun!!
Sitting in the waiting are at a dentist and hearing the drills is nerve wracking lol
Oh yes you are right!! I don’t like that sound, it creeps me out like fingernails on an old chalkboard.
Smiles. The cut is nice on you. 🙂
And sorry about the rash. Hope their is gone?
Take care big bro. 🤗
Thank you little sister. The rash is gone thankfully
You are welcome. 🤗
Thank you Jesus. 🙌🏼
Back in the day, barbers used to offer a few other duties. Some also provided dental, medical, and surgical services. I am more happy that they just concentrate on cutting hair.
I prefer they only cut my hair as well lol
So true lol. I wish I could visit my hairdresser for all my health problems:) because I leave feeling beautiful, feeling fresh and feeling cared for. I love your fluffy look too.
I kind of miss my scruffy look lol
I feel the same after the barber. More of a pampered feeling
